Cultivating Peace is life practice. Our speaker, Alastair McIntosh, brings his leadership on the practice and the real-world impact to our next retreat.
Europe is experiencing the greatest threat to peace on our soil since WWII, and many of us have personal relationships with those directly affected. World peace seems more tenuous, as long-simmering conflicts threaten to ignite. As we experience a renewed influx of war refugees in our respective countries, and the beat of war drums sounding beyond Europe, we are called to ask how can we react in this moment in history, and even more importantly, how can we, human beings, cultivate the kind of heart and mindset that prevents this kind of violence in the first place? What can we do in ourselves and our communities that brings clarity on how to express our Seven UU Principles, not only as an ideal, but as our lived reality?
